Description

35-year-old Asia is more like a sister than a mother to her teenage daughter, Vika (Shira Haas, Unorthodox). She is non-judgmental and free-spirited, works hard and plays hard. As Vika starts to demand more privacy and independence, Asia struggles to balance setting boundaries with her parenting style. When Vika’s health rapidly deteriorates, their household routine is shaken, and Asia must become the physical and emotional caregiver her daughter so desperately needs.
